Old Navy Oversized Quilted Jacket | Editor Review
I’m so excited for spring that I’m trying to manifest warmer weather through my wardrobe. So far, it’s safe to say that it’s not working — it’s currently snowing where I live in Minnesota, and the seven-day forecast looks seriously bleak. Nevertheless, I’m not-so-quietly building my closet up for less dire temperatures. Last week, I stumbled across the perfect pair of subtly distressed high-rise jeans. This week, I’m living for the Old Navy StretchTech Oversized Quilted Shacket ($65), my latest pre-spring purchase.
I bought the shacket in Terrestrial Green, resisting the urge to also scoop it up in the white Wish Bone color. I fell even more in love with the shacket’s quilted texture IRL; it gives the casual coat a luxe look. My only complaint? Upon trying it on when it arrived, I realized that one thing’s for sure: it lives up to its name of being very oversized. As someone who usually opts for more fitted silhouettes, it was a definite change from what I’m used to.
To be honest, the oversized look of this shacket is just a bit too oversized for me (it’s giving “I-stole-my-boyfriend’s-jacket” vibes), so I plan to swap my medium for a small the next time I’m at the Mall of America. Even so, I’ve been wearing it nonstop around my apartment: it’s comfy and lightweight, and it dressed up my tank-top-and-leggings combo, making me look a little more put together on my Zoom meetings.
According to Old Navy, this quilted shacket is “a great transitional piece that carries you from winter to spring.” I agree wholeheartedly. As I impatiently wait for warmer days, I can already picture myself throwing it on to run errands or for a walk in the park with friends. I don’t think it will keep me particularly warm, per se, so it’s definitely going to remain an around-the-house layer for me for the time being — but god, does that make me want spring even more.
